RASPLOT Helpful Hints for Frequently Asked Questions

How do I make RASPLOT plot in miles (or fraction of a mile)?

  1. After the model has been extracted, and the flood profile is ready to plot, go to the Edit menu and select Edit Panel Info.
  2. Under the General Tab, adjust the Horizontal Scale to an appropriate mile unit (in this case, one tenth of a mile was entered) in terms of feet (in this case 528). Also adjust the Selected Unit to reflect Mile.

How do I adjust the starting point and ending point of a profile?

  1. After the model has been extracted, and the flood profile is ready to plot, go to the Edit menu, and select Edit Panel Info.
  2. Under the Detail tab, adjust the Start Station, End Station, and Origin X (in this case, the position was adjusted 100 feet).

How do I add a landmark that is not located at one of the numbered cross sections?

  1. After the model has been extracted, and the flood profile is ready to plot, go to the Edit menu, and select Edit Landmark Table.
  2. Insert the appropriate data for each landmark, as needed. These landmarks can be located anywhere on the panel, and can be used to label landmarks, confluences, corporate limits, etc.
